Our 15-Year Fixed Rates Are Low & Our Process is EASY PEASY.
This loan is fully amortized over a 15-year period and features consistent monthly payments. A 15-year loan is structured in a similar fashion as a 30 year loan, but you pay off the loan in half the time. Needless to say.. given the same balances, the payment on a 15 year loan will have a higher payment because it's paid off twice as fast. There are other factors, typically mortgage interest is charged up front and so having a 15 year loan means that you are also charged less interest over the life of the loan when starting with the balance and paying to the full loan term.
That all sounds great (and it is great!) - but you have to be able to afford the payment. Sometimes that can be a stretch for people. That's not to say it isn't worth the sacrifice, but the best way to approach it is within balance.
People who typically choose a 15 year loan are looking at the long term and usually intend to stay in the home for a while… and the higher monthly payment doesn't put any extra pressure on their life. For example, investors will often pick a 15 year mortgage if they plan a long term hold and have a renter who can cover the extra.
Sometimes borrowers opt for a 30-year fixed-rate loan and voluntarily make larger payments that may pay off their loan in 15 years. This approach is often safer than committing to a higher monthly payment, since it gives them some financial flexibility and the difference in interest rates isn't always that great.*No matter what options you choose, the key is to find the right fit for your specific situation. *
